  • crystal maiden frostbite doesn't always work

    It can be broken by shadowblade, Juggernaut's bladefury and several other abilities, probably up past a second after the ice has appeared. So it seems to act like a channeled ability and is trivial to avoid but the spell doesn't say its channeled.

    You can use most abilities through frostbite, it is not a stun. Only ability that I can recall that it stops is blink and physical attacks.

    If they can actually debuff frostbite with shadow blade, that might actually be a bug.

      Blink and Metamorphosis-based skills cannot be used while under the effect of Frostbite(except for Phantom Strike).
      Units that turn invisible while Frostbite is active are still revealed to Rylai's team for its duration.

      That's how it should works, can you do test if Shadowblade removes Frostibite?
      As far as I know Jugg becomes magic immune with Bladefury so he may remove Frostbite debuff.

        Currently ensnares and entangles do not silence transformation skills as they should, however that's been previously reported.

        Bladefury can and should remove frostbite (think of it as a special ensnare, it holds them in place and disarms them, that is all. It does not stop them from rotating or casting spells, INCLUDING orb skills such as glaives of wisdom).

          just to make sure everyone knows the difference between ensnare and frostbite this :

          Frostbite = Magic buff
          Ensnare = Physical Buff

          thing that removes Frosbite = going Magic Immune (naix rage, jugger's bladefury, etc)
          thing that removes Ensnare = going Physical Immune (ethereal blade, ghost scepter, decrepify, etc)

          (more info check my over nine thousand sig)

          that's all about debuffing those abilities, about casting other abilities wyn and the others have pointed out

            So even after frostbite has completely taken effect you can escape it? Not just before it finishes drawing? That's kind of silly isn't it?

            The reason I thought it was a bug is that I don't think bladefury breaks it after its "channeled".

              Frostbite is NOT a stun! There are tons of skills that get removed afterwards if you cast bladefury / get magic immune.
              If you think I've closed or deleted a post unjustified, feel free to PM me and I'll explain it to you/discuss it with you further.

                I didn't know that. And escaping it with shadowblade?

                  You cannot escape from Frostbite with Shadow Blade. Actually, you also won't be able to turn invisible under Frostbite, you'll still be seen to the Crystal Maiden, until the Frostbite ends.
                  I think you have done something wrong there... You shouldn't be able to escape with a Shadow Blade.

                    Frostbite, overgrowth=entangles
                    Naga net, troll net, meepo net, sylla root=ensnares

                    Entangles are magical buffs, they should be removed by magic immunity/cyclone/mirror image/purge
                    Ensnares are physical buffs, they should be removed by physical immunity (ethereal)/cyclone/mirror image

                    These are buggy as hell in dota 2 (see my thread about them) and we'll just have to wait for valve to fix them.

                        any invis should NOT break frostbite, they will be revealed for the duration. any magic immunity will break frostbite

                          Well shadowblade breaks frostbite the same as blade fury does.

                          But if that sort of stuff is a known bug then...

                            I have seen a void time walk in frostbite too. It's annoying.

                              Pff... I went ahead and tested it once again. No such thing.
                              This thread can be closed, what peterius implies on the original post is [Intended] for the Blade Fury and [Incorrect] for the Shadow Blade.






                              Please, at least check once again before someone objects your claim and you want to insist on your claim... next time.

                              Also intended. Frostbite does not prevent you from casting skills, and if the skill you cast grants you magic immunity, the Frostbite will wear off, simple as that.
